Speech podium

Last week, Brian hosted a multi-city call-in show on race, justice, and community policing, and it prompted many white listeners to call in and talk about re-examining their role in this dialogue. The conversation continues with a call-in for white people on the challenge of talking about race. Plus: the details of today's historic nuclear deal with Iran; NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer on NYC's $5.9 million settlement with Eric Garner's family and ongoing problems at NYCHA; the art – and power – of being a political speechwriter; and the scrutiny of Serena Williams' athletic physique.
